A young Florence mom has been arrested again for having her fourth child test positive for cocaine.
Tiasyia Tillman, 21, was charged Saturday with unlawful neglect of a child after her newborn daughter tested positive for having drugs in her system.
Tillman is the same mother arrested in October when her three other juvenile children tested positive with high readings of cocaine. Those charges are pending.
This is one of many stories in this week’s new edition of The Jail Report, sold in local gas stations for $1.25. Look for your copy today.
The two arrests of Tillman come after an investigation by the S.C. Department of Social Services. The agency first called police in October because they had been working with Tillman and had her children drug-tested, according to a report from the Florence Police Department.
The mother has four juvenile children with one of them being a newborn.
The DSS employee said she did not initially have the newborn drug-tested because the reading at the hospital at birth came back normal. But drug tests for the older children showed high levels of cocaine.
Recently, a drug test showed positive cocaine results for the baby.
As far as herself, a drug test showed Tillman had positive results for cocaine and marijuana in her system.
The mother told authorities that he child’ father does smoke marijuana inside of her apartment on North Sunset Street, but he doesn’t smoke it around the children.
The investigation resulted in Tillman’s arrest on Saturday.
